Description

Introducing the newest bearing innovation from Seismic: Seismic Tekton 7-Ball LITE Built-In Longboard Skateboard Bearings!

The integrated spacer in the Tekton Bearings is self-aligning, therefore making sure that you get a proper spin without having to worry about how precise your bearing seats or axles are. The Tekton Bearing is designed to correct small (but substantial) flaws in your axles and bearing seats to allow your wheels to spin faster and maintain more of their intended characteristics. The widened lip at the connection point between the bearings is the key to this design. By having a larger and more precise contact patch between the two bearings, you can be sure your wheels are performing to their full potential.

Seismic's Description

Tekton™ 7-Ball LITE Bearings with Precision Built-In Spacer System
A streamlined, more affordable version of our patented Tekton 7-Ball XT™ Built-In bearing design.
Next-level skate bearing tech – more speed, better handling, longer life!

Precision Alignment • 30% Stronger Steel Casings • Tighter Assembly Tolerances • Premium Lube
– More speed & acceleration
– Consistent wheel contact & grip
– Predictable slide release & hookup
– Extended wheel & bearing life

Built-in Spacing System: Integral half-spacers end in broad, flat contact surfaces that square up and self-stabilize inside wheels – correcting for flaws in bearing seat levelness, bearing seat spacing, axle diameter, and axle straightness. Combines with Tighter Radial Tolerances (3µ – 5µ) that minimize torsional play inside bearing assemblies. Locks in highly-precise alignment, protects against friction and wear, minimizes noise.

Tougher Construction: Superior steel and thicker outer casings boost strength by more than 30%! Ball raceways hold smooth polish, and bearings stay tight and fast, for far longer! 30%-stiffer casings resist flexing, spin truer / faster, keep seals from popping off on extreme impacts.

7-Ball Assembly: Classic configuration. Best overall durability against frequent high impacts and side loads.

Premium Steel Balls: Superior concentricity, surface smoothness, strength, and durability.

High-End Lubricant: Packed with premium “high-RPM” light grease from Kyodo Japan. Formulated for peak performance under actual skating stresses, not max free-spin time.

Inner Race: Specially contoured under seal to resist contamination, and stepped between bearing body and flange to save weight. Extends 0.5mm outside to form built-in washer. No bearing spacers or axle washers required!

Additional Features: Dupont® engineering-grade Nylon retainers, removable rubber-coated steel seals with printed graphic.

Meets or exceeds all criteria for ABEC-9 rating.
